Conference patron:

Highlight of the RHEC-2021 is the overall recent progress of hydrogen technology including hydrogen production, storage, infrastructure and its utilization. This comes followed by discussion on national hydrogen energy strategies, codes, public acceptance, national legislations, regulations, and directives for its introduction on global level. Within RHEC-2021 we are also focusing on the fields that currently don’t have much connection to the hydrogen, but what will come sooner than later. And this is where, among others, ICT sector is expecting to play noticeable role. ICT is the great electrical energy consumer, and its energy demand is expecting to continue to grow. In order to reduce CO2 emission, and to keep global warming below 2C, we need to focus on clean energy, i.e. RES in all sectors. Due to their intermittency, RES comes in conjunction with energy carrier and energy storage, and this is where hydrogen takes its major role as an efficient, and CO2 free energy carrier that could enable, among others, ICT to make positive change with its carbon footprint.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Countries Hydrogen Strategies, Policies, and Roadmaps
Electrolyzers (design, modelling, experimental approach)
Fuel Cells (design, modelling, experimental approach)
Green Hydrogen
Hydrogen Application (transport, households, industry, ICT, general energy)
Hydrogen Economy
Hydrogen in Climate Change Adaptation
Hydrogen in Energy Transition
Hydrogen in Smart Grids
Hydrogen Infrastructure (HRS)
Hydrogen Management
Hydrogen on Islands with ICT Support

Opatija, with its 170-year-old tourism tradition, is the leading seaside resort of the Eastern Adriatic and one of the most famous tourist destinations on the Mediterranean. With its aristocratic architecture and style, Opatija has been attracting artists, kings, politicians, scientists, sportsmen, as well as business people, bankers and managers for more than 170 years.

The tourist offer in Opatija includes a vast number of hotels, excellent restaurants, entertainment venues, art festivals, superb modern and classical music concerts, beaches and swimming pools – this city satisfies all wishes and demands.

Opatija, the Queen of the Adriatic, is also one of the most prominent congress cities in the Mediterranean, particularly important for its ICT conventions, one of which is MIPRO, which has been held in Opatija since 1979, and has attracted more than a thousand participants from over forty countries. These conventions promote Opatija as one of the most desirable technological, business, educational and scientific centers in South-eastern Europe and the European Union in general.

    Message from Chair:

    Hydrogen economy is the synonymous for sustainable energy system in which clean hydrogen replaces fossil fuels. We are currently in the best position ever to make progress in climate change adaptation. And COVID-19 helped us a lot in that, because of which the Earth has took a break and has started to breath with full lungs. During this challenging time, lower emissions of CO2 were recorded, the flora and fauna seemed to be reborn, beautiful photographs of nature and cities were circulating around the world. It is a huge message to all of us that we need to stop living too risky, especially when it comes to mass and fast transportation. During the pandemic, the world was reorganized in many activities. Primarily, mechanisms for the rapid isolation of states will be developed in every way: from health, transport to energy. In context of that, solar energy and other forms of renewable energy sources (RES) in conjunction with hydrogen are directions for energy independence. Macro-networks will need to be able to disintegrate quickly and flexibly into micro-networks, as well as reconnect if necessary, and we need to materialize such a philosophy! Nature offered us a help and this is a great opportunity to create a new green world with energy transition based on hydrogen and RES. In this way, RES and hydrogen technologies are becoming the key of energy transition and decarbonization of the energy, and in integration with the ICT sector they can ensure a new cycle of industrial development of the country.
